Newt's movie review

A very severe, stoney and buff Kurt rarely speaks through the whole movie. And it kind of works for him. Sort of. For a while. But then when you find out it's yet another metaphor it becomes rather trying.

The backdrops were awful, when there was dialogue it was bad, the plot was threadbare, but some of the effects were very cool and Kurt was extremely buff. Usually a picture is worth a thousand words but this one is somewhere around 100. Miss it.

Ripley's movie review

Ice recommended this movie to me. He'd seen it a couple of times and said that it surprised him. It surprised me, too.

Russell said maybe a dozen words in the entire movie. Mostly, he just looked at people with a disconcerting stare. He did a good job though, the story was ok, and I enjoyed the movie. I have to say though, that this was the last place I expected to hear a Loreena McKennitt song. Worth watching.
